"Great Gloves" 2/21/2011
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Defcon Transistor EV Snowboard Gloves Men's
  • Pros:  Waterproof, Warm, snot thumb

Experience:   Used these gloves all day in 20 degree windy weather and they kept my hands warm. I haven't had any issues with them getting soaked, the waterproofing seems to be very good. The entire back side of the thumb is made of that soft snot cloth stuff so theres alot of area to wipe ur nose/face which I didn't think I would really care about, but I actually am very glad that its there. I thought the cuff might have been a little longer judging by the picture, but the cuff is actually kinda short. I don't know where the squeegee is either. My hand measures 8.5 cm and the Mediums fit great. The gloves are pretty compact as well. Very happy with this purchase.
"Sweet Bindings" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome S90 Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  Good Looks, Awesome Ankle Strap, Solid
  • Cons:  Toe Strap,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I got the small size and I think I needed the Larger size. My boots are 2011 32 Lashed size 8.5. I figured since I'm below size 9 I should be ok with the smaller binding, but I guess the extra width of the 32 boots requires the larger size. The boots fit in but just barely, the widest part of the outsole is squeezed against the bindings on both sides, but I can get in and out just fine. I also had a problem with the toe strap. No matter how I put it, over the top or toe cap style, I would get pinching on my small toe. but this could also be due to the small binding size. I was too excited to ride on them but I probably should have exchanged for the larger size. I ended up putting on the toe straps from my old salomon bindings ( I like the fast fit feature). Besides those issues I love how the bindings look and perform, they have a very solid feeling while riding and there is a ton of adjustability built into them. Its nice that the ankle straps can spin all the way around if you need to move them out of the way, and the ratchets have a smooth action and are easy to operate.

An update after a season and a half on these bindings. As other people have said the tool-free highback adjust mechanism has been giving me problems. the "lock" comes undone during a run and then it gets packed with snow and I can't get it locked again. very frustrating. Luckily you can snug them down with an allen wrench.



"Great jacket" 2/23/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2006 Sessions Combaticon Snowboard Jacket
  • Pros:  Tons of features, Warm, Waterproof
  • Jacket Fit:  Too small
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  I bought the Large and it was tight across the back and in the elbows. I exchanged it for an XL which fits perfect.

Experience:   I'm not a very big guy but like things a little bit on the baggy side. I figured the Large would fit perfect but actually I guess the sizing for this jacket runs a little small. The Large was tight across the back and in the elbows, and when I took out the liner to wear it as the reversible jacket it was way too small. Got the XL and it fits great. at 5'8 i never thought I would need an XL anything. This jacket is loaded with features though. Tons of pockets, headphone pockets in the collar, and the hood and storm skirt are removable. The liner is super easy to take out and put in. Behind the velcro zipper flap there is a pocket with a goggle wiper cloth and a clear pocket for ID (i put a watch in there) that you can get to without having to unzip. This jacket is pretty warm but probably not the warmest. I wear only a base layer under this and am OK almost everywhere. but at 20degreeF and super windy on the chair lift I was kinda cold. Seems to be pretty waterproof too. The cuffs were the only spot that was kinda damp, but I still fall often so I expected that.

Comments & Questions

I forgot to comment on the chest venting. They are easy to open and close and they have mesh behind them so you don't have to worry about snow getting in there. But, I think this style of vent does not work as well as the armpit type vent. The vent does not really open very much and could probably be bigger, but they do work if you are overheating.



"Nice Helmet" 1/28/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Bern Watts Snowboard Helmet Men's
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Compact, Comfortable

Experience:   I have the EPS version and the visor fits perfectly with my Oakley A frames. The removable liner helps to keep the back of your head and neck warm and is washable too. It keeps me just the right temperature on 20 to 30 degree days, and I get pretty hot so the vents must work well. There is an optional set of thinner summer pads that you can snap in when you don't need to cover your ears. Great comfy fit and light weight.
"Fun Board" 9/16/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 K2 Raygun Wide Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Jibs,Low Speeds,Off Trail
  • Pros:  Light weight, fast response,
  • Cons:  Not good on ice,

Experience:   I have the 153 regular version of this board. It is a really maneuverable and fun board. Its very light weight due to the hybritaper, but because of that the tips are more prone to getting chips. This board is great going edge to edge, and it is great for tree runs as long as there is no ice. I really struggled with any amount of ice on this board. It has decent straight line speed and seemed pretty stable as well. I really like this board but not if you're going to see ice on the regular.
"Decent" 2/21/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2005 Dakine Snowboard Stomp
  • Pros:  Large,
  • Cons:  snow fills in holes,

Experience:   Ive use alot of these foam stomp pads and never really had any problems. Even the tiny foam stomp pad that came with my bindings worked OK. This stomp pad almost goes from edge to edge of the snowboard, And I did like the plain look of it as it did not take away from the graphics of the board. The holes did fill up with snow but my foot never slipped off. I wish I bought two of these instead of shelling out 13 bucks for a new stomp pad. Rub some wax on your topsheet around the stompad and it will help its performance.
"Was good while it lasted" 2/18/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Salomon Drift Rocker Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,Low Speeds,Park,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Lots of Pop, pretty stable at speed, Nice colors/graphics

Experience:   This was my first go at anything other than a camber board. I'm an East Coast rider so the equalizer sidewall convinced me to try this rocker board in 154 size. I had no issues with catching edges at all, and the board was surprising stable going fast on the groomers (though not as stable as my 160 camber board). This board got me through the moguls with ease, but since I'm still progressing, I cannot comment on its park performance. It does have alot of pop and I could nollie alot higher than before. I couldn't find any real good powder, but I didn't take any nose dives in what I did find. This board gets 4 stars from me because after one day of riding I noticed the topsheet was delaminating on both sides of the tail. I guess I got a bad one. I would have liked to keep the board, but I exchanged it for something else since the store I purchased it from was out of them.
"Must have for wide feet" 2/9/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Thirty Two Lashed Snowboard Boots Men's
  • Pros:  Wide, Very lightweight, Stylish Looks
  • Cons:  None,
  • Fit:  stiff
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  8.5

Experience:   Having wide feet I had to go with 32. I buy bigger size shoes to accommodate for the width, but with these boots I can get the correct size for my feet with comfort. I put in superfeet green(flat feet), but the 32 provided insole appears to be well designed(heel cup and some arch support). Everyone who picks them up to look at them can't believe how little they weigh. the articulating cuff definitely reduces the distortion of the boot. the inner lace harness works great and holds my heel very well, although I wish the lock for the inner harness laces would automatically lock when you push it down (instead you have to push it down tight, then push another thing to lock it). The independent eye stays also hold the laces in so they can't fall out while your tyeing them. Comfy boot with no pressure points for me!
"Good entry level boot" 1/28/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Salomon Brigade
  • Pros:  Fast lacing, Comfy,
  • Cons:  poor heel hold,
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  soft
  • Shoe Size:  10
  • Boot Size:  8?

Experience:   These boots are really comfortable and the speed power lace 2 is really fast and easy. One pull for the liner and one pull for the outer which automatically locks. The locking mechanism on the liners could be better tho. They are pretty soft even tho they are rated 5/10. 32 lashed is also rated 5/10 but they are way more stiff. These were the first boots I purchased, and I probably needed a size 8 instead of 9. Because of this I have serious heel lift issues on my back foot with these boots, but its probably because i bought the wrong size. I have the 2008 model so the new models probably have better features. Definitely a fast and easy to lace up comfy flexy boot that you can get at a good price.
"great goggles" 12/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Oakley AFrame Snowboard Goggles Men's
  • Pros:  No fogging, comfortable , stay put

Experience:   These are great goggles that don't fog up and they stay put when I catch an edge. very comfortable. The strap is easy to adjust with two adjusters you just pull apart to tighten on your head. The persimmon lens works well for multiple conditions. I have not tried them yet with a helmet though.
"Average Sock" 12/7/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Phase
  • Pros:  Tight fit doesn't bunch up, Stays dry,
  • Cons:  Not much for padding,
  • Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  Sock fits tight but without cutting off circulation

Experience:   This sock looks cool but doesn't seem very special to me. It doesn't bunch up or have bulky seems so they are pretty comfortable. They aren't very thick and don't provide much padding, but they do keep my feet dry.
"Good binding for a beginner" 11/24/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Salomon Force
  • Pros:  Lightweight, Large buckles ,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   These are the first bindings I've owned, and after a few trips I can't complain about anything. They are easier than any rental stuff I've used especially with Salomon's special toe strap. Big metal buckles are easily ratcheted with gloves still on. I'll use these as long as they last for sure.
